And, evidently, it isn’t just the general public who have been affected by the series’ cancellation as Deadpool’s co-creator Rob Liefeld has recently revealed.
Whilst attending the world premiere of Ant-Man and the Wasp, Liefeld, who was in attendance, was asked what he thought about FX dropping the project.
Speaking to Variety, Liefeld revealed;
“I thought the whole thing was brilliant. And I really can’t say anything more than that or I’ll get into all sorts of trouble from every side. I mourn the loss of that entire project. Donald is a genius, and I’ll always wonder how that would have worked out.
But Marvel says: ‘Rob, good things are coming.’
And good things have always come, so I’m gonna believe them and hang on for dear life.”
What these “good things” that Marvel has planned remain to be seen, but as far as the animated FX Deadpool series is concerned, it’s officially dead.
Glover and his brother, Stephen, revealed how FX‘s cited “creative differences” may not have been the full reason behind their decision to cancel the project, as Stephen revealed that a proposed Taylor Swift-themed episode may have been the final straw.
